50lb Severn haul topped by 3lb roach!

by Angling Times |

THE River Severn has thrown up some clonking fish this season, and this roach landed by London angler Wayne Casserly is right up there with the best.

Weighing 3lb, it was his first fish of the day from the river’s lower reaches.

Fishing four maggots on a size 14 hook below a groundbait feeder plugged with hemp and caster, Wayne landed the huge fish at first light.

He backed it up with another 2lb roach, plus 50lb of bream.
